Amazon has a new head of corporate affairs. Politico is reporting that President Barack Obama’s former White House press secretary Jay Carney will be a senior vice president at Amazon, reporting directly to CEO Jeff Bezos. Amazon’s current PR chief, Craig Berman, will report to Carney, who will also be overseeing Amazon’s lobbying efforts. Previously, Carney had been rumored to be looking for a position in the technology industry, and reports last fall said he was considered for positions at both Apple and Uber. (Uber eventually hired Obama’s former campaign manager, David Plouffe.)
